wouldn't it be easier to just remove the metal casing and use the empty lighter to produce a spark?
Yes it's a good alternative, but is more bigger to bring with you :)
Not if you use a Dremel to cut the depressurized gas chamber of the lighter...and you can depressurized bics with a thumb tack
Yes it's a good alternative, but is more bigger to bring with you :)
